Announcing RooConnect! Coming Summer 2019!
The Department of Student Life and the SOuRCe are excited to announce that OrgSync, UA’s student organization online database, will be upgrading to a new version called RooConnect this May! The upgraded online platform will have a fresh look, new features, and will maintain the capabilities your student organization currently has with OrgSync. Since we have been using OrgSync for the past seven years, we are excited about this upgrade and the benefits it will have to our 330+ student organizations.
To learn more information about the upgrade, tasks student organizations will need to complete, and the anticipated timeline, please explore the following documents. As always, the SOuRCe is available to answer any questions you have. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
OrgSync is a web application that allows students and faculty to join, organize, manage and communicate with registered student organizations and their members. OrgSync's layout resembles "Facebook" but is strictly for University of Akron's campus.
If your student organization is interested in learning more about OrgSync, come to one of our bi-monthly OrgSync trainings.
For example, OrgSync allows student organizations to:
UA students, faculty/staff or alumni can log in by visiting www.uakron.edu/orgsync. Here, you’ll be prompted to provide your UANet ID and password. First-time users will be directed to set-up their profiles.
Once you have logged in, click on the green "Browse Organizations" button near the top of the Community Page. Here, you can browse our list of organizations and can request to join them to stay involved!
Organizations can utilize the website builder as an administrator of a group by clicking the "Website" tab within the group's page. Should you need assistance building your site, contact Alison Doehring at email@example.com
The SOuRCe hosts trainings throughout the fall and spring semesters that allow for you to have a more hands-on training. Contact the SOuRCe to organize a training to help you or your group best utilize OrgSync by emailing one of our Graduate Assistants at firstname.lastname@example.org
